According to @MaximeBernier - his new party (PPC) has already raised $140k despite being unable to issue tax receipts #cdnpoli
Some of the PPC’s planks (according to the release)
- respect taxpayers
- respect our Constitution
- equally respect all regions, provinces and territories
- respect our traditions, our history, and what makes Canada a unique place in the world... #cdnpoli
Bernier promises to have 338 candidates in the next election
According to @MaximeBernier “Canadian politics has been hijacked by interest groups, cartels, lobbies, international organizations, corporate or union interests, and the interests of politicians and bureaucrats in Ottawa who are disconnected from ordinary citizens” #cdnpoli
Asked about his new party’s policies on climate change... @MaximeBernier says it’s coming later #cdnpoli
